VIOLET - A Theatre Experience like none other

violetpeekWhen I say “Musical Theatre” … what comes to mind?

Cheery chorus lines, dancing and singing with shining smiles and peppy choreography?  Light hearted love stories and catchy songs?

That’s the common conception.  But Musical Theatre can be much deeper, more complex, and delve into more dramatic story lines.  And if you doubt it, you need only check out the production of VIOLET running now through the 21st at the Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center.

The latest production by STAGED! PDX (the local theatre company dedicated to minimalist sets and costumes, focusing on complex musical scores and rich stories) is producing (so there’s a win right there).  It’s the story of a young woman, scarred by her father (literally) as she travels through the deep south in the 1960’s.  Mature themes abound so audience members should be at least in middle school.

For details and ticket info, check out the Staged Website.

*full disclosure, I am a volunteer with Staged although I am not affiliated with this production*
